Chanukah Across America is NJOP’s new campaign, challenging synagogues and Jewish organizations to help engage as many Jews as possible to experience the joyous festival of Chanukah. The Chanukah Across America challenge will enable NJOP and its partners to work together to share the light, salvation and hope that is reflected in the Chanukah miracle.
NJOP will award a prize of $1,000 each to four synagogues and/or Jewish organizations based on a combination of the following criteria: the most creative, impactful and educational program that reaches the most people on Wednesday night, December 28th.
